Discover what Our Las Vegas Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys Can Do for You
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are among the most devastating types of injuries victims and families face after serious accidents. A TBI almost always permanently affects a victim’s quality of life and brings changes to the family as well. A brain injury may be the result of a car accident, a truck accident, motorcycle accident or other type of traffic incident, but people can suffer a TBI as a result of any type of sudden, violent blow to the head. For example, a fall at a casino may lead to a TBI.

There are different types of brain injuries. An “open-head injury” is typically characterized by a penetration of the skull. Such serious injuries typically require prolonged hospitalization and extensive rehabilitation. Another type of TBI is called a closed-head brain injury. These types of injuries occur after a blow to the head that does not involve penetration. A closed-head injury can be dangerous, because a victim might not initially realize the seriousness of the injury. There may be internal bleeding that might not be obvious but requires immediate medical attention.
People might not realize a concussion is a type of brain injury – and even a “mild” brain injury should not be ignored. It’s important to seek immediate medical care if you suspect you or someone you love has suffered any type of brain injury.
